Many of the bells in the previous sections have been “high-dollar” items – nice to own but expensive to purchase. It can be equally satisfying to sort through the trash and find a few treasures – bells which, in their own way, are among the best in their class but not necessarily expensive.

Art Deco desk/office/hotel chrome bell.
All chrome steel, wound by turning the bell, ringing by pressing the red button.
Very smooth operation, polished chrome finish with a few nicks.
Diameter 10.5 cm (4.2 in). Height: 5 cm (2 in).

An Art Deco interpretation of a wind-up bell, with the simplified and sleek design of that period
in which chrome was very popular (e.g., Chase Mfg items from the USA).

unusual table bell electric porcelain GAY PERRIN 71chaussée d’Antin
A rare old electric table bell push in porcelain, signed under the base (GAY PERRIN 71chaussée d’Antin), height approx 11 cm (4.4 in), approx 5.8 cm (2.3 in) diameter of the base, old repair to the arms of the mandolin, in good condition.

Unusual to find a bell push with a porcelain figure. Note that she is standing next to a stump.
This “triangulates” the figure, and makes it much more sturdy and shock resistant than if
supported only by her two legs.
